Hello everyone. My name is Tim and I'm a new fisherman. I never fished till about a year ago when our younger brother got a rod during a hiking trip to a Texas state park. He found out some info and then got us involved, we learned most everything on our own and online and we don't know much, haha. Much to learn. First fishing trip Lake Ray Roberts and was able to hook a nice bass on a saltwater popping rig carolina set up with a berkley powerbait stinky lizard, got him to the bank just in time for him to jump out of the water, throw the hook, and show me his butt and swim off. I was hooked. Got even more hooked when we went down to Galveston a few times for pier and shore fishing and I caught a fat 20" speckled trout. I was into traditional archery and bowhunting for several years but haven't been able to hit the woods in years so this is a much needed new addiction to get me in the outdoors. We tried to keep our tackle investment low until we got a handle on things. That worked for a while until I discovered clearance sales and online deals. I guess it is true that fishing lures are more about catching fisherman than fish. LOL.
